We are running Win 7 SP1 RSAT with a Server 2003 DC. We mainly use it to reset AD passwords. The performance is extremely slow (one minute of non-responsiveness per password reset). How do we improve the performance?
There aren't really enough details here to give a definitive answer, so I'll share this nugget of knowledge:
If you have an AD problem, it's probably because of a DNS issue. If you checked DNS and you still have a problem, it's because you missed the DNS issue that's causing your problem.
